2.0 out of 5 stars Buy a dual band gateway as WiFi speeds on this device are slow, August 5, 2016
Just contracted with Xfinity for their quad play (TV, internet, voice and home security) and did not want to pay $10.00/month for their rental modem/router/gateway. Saw this gateway with the Xfinity name on it and thought it would be perfect. It was, but ultimately it was not.
First, the good. It was extremely easy to install. Just plugged it in and it immediately connected to TV, internet and voice. No need to even speak to a representative. A few clicks on the computer and it was good to go. Unfortunately, it did not connect to the Xfinity Home Security. When I called Xfinity, they could not get security to connect remotely, so a technician was dispatched 10 days later to figure out why security would not connect.
Now the bad. In the days waiting for the technician I still had the Xfinity rental gateway and it was still working. So I did speed tests from all of my devices using first the rental gateway and then this purchased device. When connected via wired LAN, the speeds were identical at 65 to 90 mps. But on WiFi this device was only able to eke out 5 to10 mps, whereas Xfinity's rental device was putting through 20 to 25 mps consistently. The rental modem was dual band 2.4 GHz and 5GHz. This purchased device was not.
Unfortunately, the Xfinity rental gateway is not available for retail purchase so I just decided to keep the rental at $10.00/month and return this purchased device. My contract with Xfinity is for 24 months, so the cost is about break even rental vs. purchase. In two years, dual band gateways with telephony should be available for purchase.
Incidentally, the technician said he could connect this purchased gateway to the Home Security if I chose, but, as stated, I decided to keep the rental and return the purchase for faster speeds available with the rental.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nearly expired, June 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product arrived with an expiration date only several months in the future. I intended to stock up so I would have them for the upcoming year, but am afraid to use them as the bags are filling with gas, apparently from the product already starting to go bad. Only buy this product if you plan to use it within a month or two of receipt.

1.0 out of 5 stars 6 months and done, June 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product only lasted 6 months and quit. Do not waste your money. The original ice maker which came with the refrigerator worked 12 years before needing replacement. 6 months is not acceptable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed, April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When my old cord's switch stopped working I looked for a replacement in many local stores and could not find one. Amazon to the rescue.
The product is not exactly as pictured (the switch is black and not red and is a bit bigger than shown), but functions the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars Way too much to absorb., April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book should really be advertised as for clinicians only. The many references to detailed research studies are beyond what the average reader wants or needs.
Wish this book came in a beginners version (without all the details) and a professional version (for those who know how to interpret the research data). I gleaned some information before giving up at about page 214.
I then offered the book to a friend who agreed with my assessment. He gave up after skimming through it.
Also, the glued binding of the book is weak and pages started falling out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should be easier., April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a very straightforward return, yet the H&R Block software always raises several questions through the preparation process that I can't answer. The problem is probably not with software company, but with the IRS regulations. But I wish H&R Block did a better job of explaining exactly what information they are seeking.
I've used this software (which used to be called Tax Cut) for the past 5 years, largely because it is cheaper than the competition. And Amazon offers even a better price than local stores.
Don't appreciate that the consumer is encouraged to upgrade from, say, the Deluxe version to the Premium version when the Deluxe version is perfectly acceptable.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was a little concerned about buying a battery with an "unknown" brand, but, it was fine.
Amazon is a wonderful place to go for any "hard to find" button batteries. Local stores either don't carry them or are out of stock. I've purchase many different button batteries through Amazon and have not been disappointed yet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dead on arrival., January 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I received a dud. Unpacked the box, read the directions, filled it with ingredients, plugged it in and pushed the start button. And nothing happened. What a disappointment! I tested the electrical outlet, shook the machine, tried pushing the start button hard and soft, plugged it in and unplugged it hoping to reset it and nothing happened. No sound, no light, no sparks, no nothing.
So, I discarded the ingredients, repacked the unit and sent it back to Amazon.
Incidentally, Amazon's return procedure receives 5 stars. I dropped the box at a UPS store using the return shipping label provided by Amazon and there was no charge, apparently because the product was defective upon arrival. I received full credit.
And some of the bread recipes looked so promising!
I chose the Oster CKSTBRTW20 as a replacement and it is working well so far.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unstable, January 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased for my 93 year old uncle who still wants to exercise. We took his recumbant bicycle away from him for fear he would fall getting on and off.
His first problem with this device was getting his feet into the stirrups. Even with feet in the stirrups, the device is unstable and flips over in use. Without feet in stirrups it is totally unusable. And age has nothing to do with the stability problem. It flipped on me as well.
You get what you pay for. A larger, heavier device (at a much greater price) is really what we needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A keeper., January 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Having received a West Bend breadmaker which was dead upon arrival, I asked Amazon to send me this Oster as a replacement.
I've made about 5 loaves thus far from the included Oster recipe pamphlet and all but one have risen properly and baked fine. The rye bread recipe worked the first time, but dropped during baking the second time! The raisin bread recipe is delicious.
The French Bread does not come out as light and airy as with previous bread machines I've had, and most of the other breads I've made with this machine seem a little on the sweet side. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that the cycle for this machine is about an hour less for a loaf than for most other machines. Maybe they somehow compensate for that with more sugar and less rise time.
